Pakistan's world No. 1 Twenty20 offspinner Saeed Ajmal will represent Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League this season.

Ajmal will play in the Strikers' first game against Perth Scorchers on Dec. 9 and then may return in January 2013 after playing one-day and Twenty20 series against archrival India.

Ajmal is the third Pakistani to sign up for BBL this year after Shahid Afridi at Sydney Thunder and Umar Akmal for Sydney Sixers.

Ajmal says he's "really happy that I will get the chance to show my talent in BBL."

Strikers coach Darren Berry says he hopes to use Ajmal's spin as an attacking weapon on the turning Adelaide Oval pitch.
